Free Wi-Fi & cool holiday entertainment at Schiphol Airport

There are a zillion – yes, a zillion – reasons to love Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, including the casino, the airport branch of the Rijksmuseum, and the world’s first airport library.

Now there are even more!

Starting this week, Schiphol is offering free WiFi access – for one hour – anywhere in the airport terminal, including Schiphol Plaza, the lounges, piers and gates.  Free Wi-Fi is becoming common at U.S. airport, but in Europe it’s still rare.

But, wait, there’s more.

From Friday, December 17 through Sunday, December 26th Schiphol Airport will have holiday entertainment that includes an ice queen, flashmobs, wish-granting fairies, gift-giving Santas, a giant reindeer head lit with 16,200 LED Christmas lights and a miniature version of the Netherlands’ famous elfstedentocht – the 11-city skating marathon in Friesland.
